This region-specific bill authorizes the Orange County Board of Supervisors to contract for supplemental law enforcement services for homeowners’ associations to enforce Vehicle Code on the association’s owned and maintained roads. From the Legislative Counsel's digest:

This bill would, until January 1, 2017, authorize the Board of Supervisors of the County of Orange or the city council of a city within this county to contract to provide supplemental law enforcement services to a homeowners’ association on an occasional or ongoing basis to enforce the Vehicle Code on a homeowners’ association’s privately owned and maintained road, as specified. It would also require, on or before June 30, 2016, the Department of Justice to prepare and submit a report to the Legislature on certain impacts of this contract, would require the board of supervisors or city council to reimburse the department for the costs of this report, and would authorize the board of supervisors or city council to seek reimbursement for these costs.
